2019 Run for a Life Results

This is a chance to have fun, run, or walk, to support a vision which is called Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer. You may see some interesting wildlife, including an alligator or two if you are lucky. But, as you walk or run, imagine a future with zero prostate cancer deaths and an end to pain and suffering. Our vision is Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer, and you will have helped by participating in The Run for a Life.

About the Cause

One in nine American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. That’s one in nine fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends. At ZERO, we work tirelessly every day to create Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer.

For more than 20 years, ZERO – The End Of Prostate Cancer has helped save lives, support research and new treatments, educate and test men, and unite communities to make prostate cancer a national priority. ZERO is on the front lines investing in patient support programs, research for better diagnostics, and creating awareness. 85% of every dollar collected by ZERO goes to life saving programs and activities.
